I made a pot holder handle for my cast iron skillet! I knew if I didn't have something over the handle, it would only be a matter of time before I grabbed and burned my hand... I tend to do things like that! I used two layers of cotton fabric with quilt batting in between. So far, it has worked great. It took me a few times to figure out the right dimensions and the best way to put it together, the other pictures are of my first two attempts. I will try to put a tutorial together when I make a few more.
I tried another recipe too, apple cake, shown above. It was delicious. I thought it tasted much better after it cooled off, I ate two pieces right away!
